What's an option?

An option is a contract sold by one party (option writer) to another party (option holder). The contract offers the buyer the right to buy (call) or sell (put) a security or other financial asset at an agreed-upon price (the strike price) during a certain period of time or on a specific date (exercise/expiry date).
